My Dad’s song

I just re-discovered the song text my dad’s friends wrote for his birthday.

This is the original song:

And here are some nice parts of the “new”  (sorry, but only german) text:

Franz rück die Kohle raus, wir wollen’s heute krachen lassen,
dich ganz groß zu feiern, das ist heute unser Ziel.
Bekommst du die Rechnung, wird dir richtig übel,
doch das ist uns scheißegal,
denn deinen Fünfziger, den gibt es nur ein Mal.

Komm hol die Brettln raus, wir fahren wieder auf den Gletscher,
ob Pflug oder in Hocke, du schaust immer super aus.
Lass uns im Tiefschnee die Spuren ziehen
genieße jede coole Fahrt.
Komm hol die Brettln raus, wie schon die letzten Jahr’.

Franz hol die Flaschen raus, wir wollen’s heute krachen lassen,
dich ganz groß zu feiern, das ist heute unser Ziel.
Hast dich gut gehalten, hast Freude am Leben,
wünschen dir, dass es so bleibt.
Komm schenk die Gläser ein und stoße mit uns an!

These are three variations of the chorus. Throughout most of the verses, it’s about my dad working a lot, not taking enough time for himself, and, most of all, being a very good friend and an important part (not only because of his duties, but also being very active) in our ski club.

At the lines “Franz rück die Kohle raus”, everybody would wave a 50 Euro bill they printed themselves, and at “Franz hol die Flaschen raus”, they produced champagne glasses (made of plastic) out of various shirt and skirt pockets and my mom, me and my brother presented some bottles of prosecco for him to pour.

Everybody was really enjoying that song, and not only my dad had some tears in his eyes.

If any of the partaking people is reading this (thanks to facebook): Thanks again, it was great.
